Abalimi Bezekhaya means farmers of the home in isiXhosa and was in established 1982. We are a non-profit organisation (NPO and PBO) that supports micro-farmers in the Cape Flats townships to grow vegetables organically. We enable individuals and groups within the community to grow their own vegetable gardens at home, community or institutional gardens with the purpose to encourage food security and create livelihoods.
Harvest of Hope was set up in 2018 to connect the farmers to consumers through the sale of fresh organic vegetables. In 2019 Abalimi decided to close Harvest of Hope as a project within Abalimi, but Harvest of Hope was resurrected in October 2022 as a farmer led initiative. Abalimi supports Harvest of Hope to become an independent co-op that can manage the market access for micro-farmers from the townships.
